7:01 am
overseas, this time in saudi arabia. a wave of terror puts the world on edge. >> the deadliest terror tack in iraq in over a year. when a bomb goes off in a shopping mall in busy baghdad. >> what is your feeling about these up particular ticks in at >> hillary clinton, questioned by the fbi over her e-mail server. >> is the fbi going to make the right recommendation that you or i or anyone else in the american public would be indicted by now. >> nigel farage is resigning. >> an explosion shakes central park, leaving a young man with serious injury, a homemade fire work is to blame. >> we don't flow what happened. >> the world mourning holocaust survivor, elie wiesel. >> i don't live in the past. the past lives in me. >> the flood warnings remain in effect in kansas after heavy storms. >> it looks like it is going to
7:02 am
get worst. >> a plane crash lands in the middle of a lake. it went down and flipped over all made it out alive. all that -- >> are you kidding me. and all that matters. >> the braves and marlins, first of mlb at an active military base. >> your brother is in the marine corps. what are you going to tell him? >> something that, you know, i am geeg remember the rest of my life. on "cbs this morning." off he done very well as a nation, but it might be worth thinking about a handful of things that you gave up when kicking britain out of this country. because first, there is a matter of your accent. these beautiful vowel sounds could have been yours. but instead, instead, from sea to shining sea, you sound like you just burned your tongue on a hot apple pie.
7:03 am
this is brought to you by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose, norah o'donnell. i've jeff glor of wcbs tv in new york. the state department issuing a new warn anything saudi arabia after a suicide bomb attack. the saudi says he detonated a vest in jeddah. only the bomber was killed. >> the attack comes as isis shows hiits ability to carry ou devastating attacks. in iraq, over 160 killed in baghdad. in bangladesh, 20 hostages were killed less than two days earlier, during a siege of a restaurant. three students at u.s. colleges are among the dead. charlie is in london following the growing terror attacks.
7:04 am
charlie, good morning. >> good morning, iraq has declared three-days of mourning after the worst terror attack it has seen in years. isis may be taking a hammering in iraq and syria, but still able to strike back in that region, and beyond. in an instant, a busy shopping district in an up market neighborhood erupted into an inferno. the streets were packed with families enjoying the cool night, after fasting through the day. the holy month of ramadan ends this month and children looking forward to the celebrations never lived to see them. major general kadim says isis or daesh after heavy losses on the battle field. the bombing came barely a week after they finally cleared nearby fallujah of remaining isis fighters. we joined iraqi special forces during part of that fight. they faced heavy resistance from militants as they inched closer
7:05 am
to the city. backed up by u.s. air strikes. the baghdad bombing isn't just retaliation. but proof that isis can continue to strike, despite suffering losses. not just in iraq, but the isis network has unleashed its brutal brand of terror around the globe. today, police in bangladesh say they've made formal arrests over the isis siege at a café which left 20 hostages dead, including abita from miami. turkey is still reeling from the bomb attack at its main airport that claimed the lives of more than 40 people. iraq bombing comes just days before the results of a british investigation examining the reasons britain and america decided to take doin the first place. >> thank you from london. fran townsend is a former
7:06 am
security advisor to george w. bush. as much as isis is being pounded from the air right now, they've lost control of fallujah, they have bangladesh and no saudi arabia. >> that's right. we can't fool ourselves. the fact that we've taken territory away from them in places like fallujah and ramadi clearly has not diminished their ability to launch these grand scale attacks. you know, over 160 dead in baghdad, and this attack in saudi arabia that was thwarted as quite serious, the consulate had been attacked in 2004 when i was still in the white house, so the notion they're able to thwart, we know one went off from the hospital across the street, so pretty significant. remember, baghdadi called for these attacks during ramadan. this is the last day. so you can expect these isis to keep true to their word, are
7:07 am
going to continue with these attacks. >> what do they gain by these attacks? what's the strategy here? >> this is really to prove their strength. as a result of these attacks, they're able to fund raise, recruit, get attention, we're talking about it, right. they're going to continue, because it is in their interest. >> if you look at the attack in bangladesh, it was very well coordinated, what does it say about their reach? >> it is interesting. we make the distinction, was it directed or inspired. if you're victim, it doesn't matter, but the -- it looks as though, we don't know yet, if this was inspired, three guys grabbed guns, weapons and go into an airport, on the other hand, in bangladesh, you had nine attackers, they were pushing out photos to get inside isis central so the pr agency could push those photos out. so that looks like there was a closer tie into sort of the central coordination of isis. >> when you look at attacks in the last month, we mentioned
7:08 am
some of them before, of course, you have to mention orlando as well. what are your domestic concerns on this holiday? >> so we know from john brennan, the director of cia that we've got to assume the consistent thing here is soft targets, right. targets other than consulate in jeddah, but targets that are about sort of targets civilians. and so john brennan, the cia director said we've got to expect they do it there, they can do it here. you know, but i think, look, we happen to be in a city with the best police department in the world. americans are going to go to celebrations tonight to see fireworks displays. our law enforcement an intelligence agencies are only as good as their communities. so if you see something, say something. be continuous, if there a bag or something left that's abandoned, tell a police officer. tell security. we have to take responsibility ourselves.
7:09 am
>> good advice. fran town sesend thank you for being with us. how did an explosive ends up in central park. a teenager lost part of his leg. he had surgery yesterday and is in serious but stable condition. officials do not believe the incident is connected to terrorism. the explosion happened in a busy tourist spot, just a day before the city's fourth of july celebrations. >> reporter: good morning, conner golden was visiting from jachlt. the trio was climbing up the rocks here. conner stepped on the smaller rocks. something exploded and blew off much of his left leg. >> get back. >> reporter: paramedics arrived on scene just minutes after the explosion sunday and reached 18-year-old connor golden out of central park. >> they claim he was walking on the rocks and stepped on something. >> golden's friends, matthew
7:10 am
stable and thomas hines witnessed the blast. >> we don't know what happened. there was a small explosion, and then dust. >> beyond the caliber of fireworks, just based on what we heard. >> is this your friend. >> yes. he is our friend. we should probably get in the ambulance. >> yeah, we gotta go. >> we believe this could have been put here as some sort of experiment. >> just yards away, cameras captured the sound of the explosion, while covering the funeral of nobel lawyureate. the bomb squad is still collecting evidence. >> this is explosive material. nothing to indicate this was an employee sie explosive device with the specific intent to harm any individual. >> lieutenant mark tory suspects it may have been in the park for a day or more. >> typically we will see a lot of experimentation, explosives.
7:11 am
>> his grandmother says her grandson's leg had to be amputated from the knee down. >> one thing that conner had told his father was it didn't feel like a firework that he had stepped on. >> now, police have cleared golden and his friends of any wrongdoing. when asked how an explosive could remain in this park for possibly longer than a day, and why central park was not closed, police did not get back to us with an answer this morning. we're still awaiting to hear more about how those things could are happened. christine. >> all right, thank you. hillary clinton supporters and potential running mates are defending her in the investigation of her private e-mail server. the presumptive democratic nominee met saturday for more than three hours with fbi. she was eager to give the voluntary interview. loretta lynch and bill clinton meeting should not be a factor in the criminal probe, but the
7:12 am
republican rivals are crying foul. paula reid is in washington and has more information from the questioning. paula, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that interview happened here in washington and a sign that the investigation is likely nearing an end, she spoke out publicly about the meeting. >> i was pleased to have the opportunity to assist the department in bringing its review to a conclusion. >> cbs news has learned the fbi interview is the last step into her e-mail server. >> i will continue to, you know, be as forthcoming as i can, and my answers that i first gave more than a year ago, i stand by. >> her interview came after days of controversy over a private meeting between former president bill clinton and attorney general loretta lynch. both have said they regreet the meeting. >> i certainly wouldn't do it again. >> lynch said she'll accept
7:13 am
whatever investigation they -- it has not quieted her critics. >> donald trump says does anybody really believe that bill clinton and the usag talked only about grand kids and golf for 37 minutes on a plane on tarmac. other republicans are calling for lynch to recuse herself and appoint a special prosecutors. >> since she hasn't recused herself, it raises questions about political interference. >> it is expected to wrap up before the end of the month. democratic senators cory booker and sherrod brown dismissed any possibility she will be charged. >> there won't be an indictment, and that means that she did what many secretaries of state have done in the past. >> that's something that to me is not even within the realm of possibility. >> president obama will join clinton on the campaign trail tomorrow in north carolina. republicans have suggested the fact that the president will hit the trail for clinton indicates the investigation outcome may already be known. >> paula reid, thank you very much. new anger at donald trump,
7:14 am
after he tweeted what some call an anti-semitic picture. the presumptive republican nominee used the image to called hillary clinton the most corrupt candidate ever. it showed a six point star, like the jewish star of david over a pile of money. they traced the image that has racist messages. trump removed the tweet and sent out a new version, replacing the star with a circle. his campaign has not responded to requests for comment. mark mckinnon, george w. bush's chief media, co-host and co k co creator, returning to show time, a division of cbs on sunday. mark, good morning. >> good morning. >> so let's talk about these meetings with mrs. clinton and also the meeting with the attorney general with mr. clinton. what does this mean for her campaign? >> well, the meeting was an unforced error and a distraction. the trump tweet was a distraction. all these are distractions, at a
7:15 am
time when you want to focus on your own message. but i think this will be washed away in a week or two, when we get to the conventions. because the three opportunities when the candidates have a chance to really move the numbers in terms of their support. that's when they announce the conventions and vp pick in the debate. in ex we next week will be important. >> both of these incidents are more than distraction. the clinton investigation will go on for quite sometime and the trump tweet story may not be over as well what do you -- >> clinton and attorney general meeting, that's more an a distraction, but there is a good chance it will be resolved in the next couple of weeks. it is hard to imagine there will be an indictment. bad judgment, but hard to imagine it was criminal intent. best thing for the clinton campaign to get it resolved before the convention. >> and as far as the tweet goes, corey lewandowski, trump's former campaign manager called
7:16 am
it political correctness run amu amuck. >> another example of the trump campaign not being fine tuned. an example of a campaign that has been rushed to put together. it hasn't had years like the clinton campaign of a lot of people with a lot of experience, so it is, again, an unforced error and distraction when he should be focusing on his broader message. >> president obama will be on the campaign trail for the first time with hillary clinton coming up here. >> big deal. >> yeah, it is. timing, interesting with the whole situation happening with the attorney general what do you think about that? >> i think that -- i don't think it is related to that. i this it had more to do with bernie sanders and making sure that clinton would be the nominee and that president obama respected bernie sanders. so now it is an opportunity to come out. by the way, i think he can't wait to come out. this is an opportunity for him to cement his legacy. by the way, it has been important where the incumbent president's approval ratings, and his are historically high
7:17 am
right now. if that remains the case, that's a good sign for the clinton campaign. >> we'll be watching that. >> what the obama doesn't want to do is have any unforced errors. recently, telling the cabinet members, we don't want you to participating in the conventions. we want to make sure we have a fine line on ethical judgments on what's political and what's not. >> and that's just about being extra careful, right? >> absolutely. >> let's talk vp picks, that's all the talk right now, right. so donald trump met with mike pence, indiana governor over the weekend, talk of chris christie, if you're making the trump pick, who is it? >> well, historically, again, we're going to talk a lot about this, but it doesn't have much impact. in this case, i think would say two things. it really won't have much impact for hillary clinton, but it could have impact for donald trump. the one thing about donald trump that people have concerns about is his lack of experience, hasn't been there before. so there is a steadying influence that he can bring to the table, then that could have an impact. >> or social conservative angle.
7:18 am
>> well, yeah, like mike pence, that's who is meeting with recently. which by the way donald trump needs to do, because anybody who wins the election, they have to have at least 90% from their own party. a strong conservative would help. >> so you say it won't have much chance on the democratic side to have much of an impact, but when you look at when joe biden was in the debate, he pumped up president obama in the base actually came out a lot larger. doesn't she have to really kind of take a look at who she pick as soon as. >> it will be all about hillary clinton. i don't think in the end, when it gets to november, what she doesn't want is somebody that will hurt her, but it is hard to image anybody will -- hillary clinton we've known for years. she is a force in her own right. not much she can do that will change the dynamic. >> looking forward to your new episodes. >> circus, sunday night on showtime. >> mark, thanks so much. floodwaters swamping parts

18-year-old connor golden stepped on the apparent homemade device. he lost part of his leg. golden is in serious but stable condition. the bomb squad is still collecting evidence, but officials do not believe the explosion is connected to terrorism. the fbi investigation of hillary clinton's private e-mail server is close to finished. clinton gave the fbi a voluntary interview on saturday. the meeting lasting roughly three hours. is one of the final steps of this probe. they spoke less than a week after a highly criticized impromptu meeting between bill clinton and attorney general loretta lynch. lynch promises to follow investigators' recommendations on filing any charges. the clinton campaign is busy vetting potential running mates, but "new york times" columnist frank bruni predicts hillary clinton's vice presidential choice will not matter. he wrote this weekend that clinton, quote, has been on americans' tv screens and in their brains so long now that she's like e-mail or atms, it's hard to remember daily life

before her. opinions of her are fixed, emotions are ocifieed. frank, happy fourth. >> happy fourth to you. good to see you all. >> you think this doesn't matter for hillary clinton and donald trump as well? >> yeah, i think for both of them. you're talking about two of the largest and most polarizing personalities who've run for president. i think voters' opinions are pretty much fixed and centered on them, not any choice they're going to make right now. >> but for somebody like hillary clinton like elizabeth warren who is a name out there, a lot of people have strong opinions one way or another, somebody like chris christie for donald trump, same thing. they've got to have some impact. >> well, i don't know. it's a very important choice obviously in the sense this person could inherit the presidency. this person should be ideally an effective governor in partnering. but if you look at the outcome of presidential elections there's not a lot of evidence the running mate tilted the outcome in a meaningful way.
8:05 am
>> hillary clinton has seen so much criticism lately with the fbi e-mail ib kwir inquiry and also the benghazi report. couldn't somebody she picks kind of help her here pivot away from some of these controversies? >> i personally don't think so. you mentioned those controversies, those are further examples of how she's been in the public eye for so long at the center of so many controversies. i think at this point people either trust her or they don't trust her. and i don't think this one decision choosing a running mate is going to be an a-ha moment for voters where they say i understand her in a way i never did before. there's been so much evidence up until now. >> specifically elizabeth warren, we saw them together recently in a fiery event. could she be a risk for hillary clinton? >> i think she could be a risk in the sense that elizabeth warren to her credit is someone very much a creature of her convictions, who doesn't compromise, doesn't bend easily. how does she become a running mate? how does she -- the principle criterion for a running mate is somebody who can bite his or her tongue very well and very frequently. and defer to the person at the top of the ticket.
8:06 am
i don't know that that's going to be an easy job or an easy fit for elizabeth warren. >> the big trump potential v.p. names circulating around right now are mike pence, indiana governor who we meet with over the weekend, newt gingrich as well as chris christie. what are we to make of the trump search? and what do you think he's looking for? >> well, the first thing we're to make of it is those three people are on the list because among the few who haven't said no thank you before donald trump even said -- >> a lot said no thanks in the beginning, right? >> in so many ways we're living through an extraordinary presidential campaign, but in this way too i've never seen in my lifetime and i doubt any of you have in yours a situation where the leading candidates for vice president under any other circumstances have almost all come out and said i do not want the job. that's how polarizing donald trump is. that's how risky it is seen by them to campaign with him and possibly go down with him. >> you also -- those are three older white mails agales again. >> chris christie's approval rating in new jersey is down
8:07 am
below 30%. newt gingrich's approval rating when he ended his 2012 presidential campaign was below 30%. these are not only other white males, people as negatively reviewed as trump some sort of reverse psychology we've never seen. >> is there someone out there that could make or break this election campaign? a lot of people talk about sarah palin and how much damage she did to john mccain's campaign. do you see anyone out there that can completely just wipe a candidate? >> well, i think sarah palin is evidence you can make a choice so disastrous that it can move the needle. now, importantly sarah palin did not cost john mccain that election. >> she did not. >> that election was about much bigger forces and dynamics. i don't see donald trump or hillary clinton making a mistake on the magnitude of sarah palin. i think everyone learned a lesson there. >> all right. frank bruni, thank you so much. this morning, we're remembering the towering influence of writer and holocaust survivor ellie wiesel.

8:33 am
john adams was absolutely correct. >> what is the deal? why are we celebrating it on the 4th? >> congress actually passed a resolution in favor of independence on the 2nd. john adams went home that night and wrote a lovely letter to his wife abigail and say 2nd of july we will celebrate and he meant fireworks and everything about the date. two days later, the congress adopted jefferson's declaration which explained the reasons why they had that vote two days earlier. but when american people saw the declaration with the date at the top, july 4th, it instantly became recognized as a birthday. john adam, by the way, did not celebrate the fourth. >> he stood his ground and said july 2nd, right? >> he stood his ground but he was alone in that pretty much. >> maybe he just likes to keep the party going. just go from the 2nd to the 4th. >> we could have that argument this should always be a three day holiday. >> i like that. >> fireworks is a huge part of

fourth. >> an incredible coincide of sorts. the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the declaration, they both die. they had been, of course very close allies at philadelphia in 1776. became bitter political rivals. ever, by the way, when you're speaking with about vice presidents, was adams' vice president, even though they were of different views. later, they became friend again and die on this day. people thought this was divine providence. >> and accordance later in their years. >> after a bitter alliance. i'm reminded of a discussion of the vice president that someone once asked about being the vice president and said i'm opposed to vice of any kind. that generally has been the view of most people. but this is about the ideas of life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, jefferson's word. he changed the word happiness from property, by the way, because that, at the time,
8:36 am
